I am a Lecturer in Economics. Prior to joining the University of Derby, I had been teaching at Edge Hill University in Lancashire. I also worked at the University of Chester and Wrexham Glyndwr University as an academic staff.

Currently, I lead Applied Economics Project, Public and Third Sector Economy, Market Analysis and Introduction to Macroeconomic Concepts and Data.
